Do you own horses, sheep, goats, or other livestock? Learn innovative, chore-efficient, eco-sensitive ways for mud management, least toxic pest control, managing odors, water conservation, and on-farm recycling. In this presentation we cover wonderful ways to put native plants to work on your farm including: rain gardens, dust barriers, visual screens, summer shade, and low-cost/low-care native landscaping. We also discuss ways beneficial wildlife can work for us by providing natural pest control. Additionally we cover environmentally sensitive ways to build an outdoor wash-rack, as well as how to manage creeks or wetlands on livestock properties. Reduce chemical use on your livestock property while making it healthier for your horses, you, and wildlife!
